Simple, stylish, contemporary, cosy with glorious views and walks from the door to pubs and woodland. We are conveniently located just off the A48 in Woolaston, a secluded location 3 miles south of Lydney, Gateway to the Forest of Dean. The Studio Barn has been lovingly restored by the owners who reside across the drive at Silverwood House. On entering The Studio Barn, a lounge area with log burning stove stacked with logs awaits, look to the right where you will find an open plan kitchen dining area, with induction hob, and all the mod cons. Upstairs an open to rafters bedroom beckons with a super king sized bed, recycled furniture has been restored and updated. The bathroom is also open to the rafters where one can enjoy the drench shower over the bath and be treated to illuminated m...Simple, stylish, contemporary, cosy with glorious views and walks from the door to pubs and woodland. We are conveniently located just off the A48 in Woolaston, a secluded location 3 miles south of Lydney, Gateway to the Forest of Dean. The Studio Barn has been lovingly restored by the owners who reside across the drive at Silverwood House. On entering The Studio Barn, a lounge area with log burning stove stacked with logs awaits, look to the right where you will find an open plan kitchen dining area, with induction hob, and all the mod cons. Upstairs an open to rafters bedroom beckons with a super king sized bed, recycled furniture has been restored and updated. The bathroom is also open to the rafters where one can enjoy the drench shower over the bath and be treated to illuminated mirrors over your very own basin. The Studio Barn sleeps two adults, a couple in a super king size bed with the option of an infant cot upon request or a pull out single bed for up to a young teenager, or friends in twin adult singles who like to go walking, cycling or fishing together. There is a lovely area of the main garden, just opposite the Studio Barn which guests can use for alfresco dining. During March - June, lambing season starts, and new born baby lambs can be seen dancing across the 7.5acres from here. Great relaxing atmosphere for city dwellers, families with one child or a babe in arms. Perhaps friends who want to go walking or fishing for the weekend would find it welcome as twin beds are also available. This place offers great flexibility, with parking right outside on the gravel drive which is gated and tucked away. Views are splendid and wildlife is everywhere. Throw open the barn door to hear birdsong and you may be lucky enough to see pheasants roaming across the drive. Sit on the garden bench and watch a couple of Buzzards soaring high above, occasionally a Heron has been seen as well as a Snowy White Barn Owl. Watch the lambs run around the fields during March through to June. A whole host of attractions and destinations are on our doorstep; Puzzle Wood, the National Diving Centre, Chepstow Castle, Chepstow Racecourse, Raglan Castle, The Wye Valley, Tintern Abbey, Tintern Railway Cafe, Tintern Parva Vineyard, Perrygrove Railway, Clearwell Caves, Norchard Steam Railway, Clanna Ponds, Cannop Ponds, Beechenhurst Lodge Go Ape, Symonds Yat Rock and the Dean Heritage Centre, to name a few. The Breacon Beacons National Park is about an hours drive away. There is so much to explore in the area for walkers, cyclists, golfers and divers. For anglers, we are right next door to Woolaston Court Trout lakes and for city visits, Cheltenham, Bristol and Cardiff are within an hours reach; Bath is about 1.5 hrs away, not forgetting the historic towns of Chepstow (10mins) and Monmouth (40mins) which are closer still. Please send me a message if you require a 7 night stay or more as we can provide a better 'rate' for a full week stay! Key Features include: Sweeping uninterrupted views of the Severn Estuary 1 Super King Double or twin European adult single accommodation 1 pull out single bed 1 cot Fully fitted kitchen Lounge and dining area Log burning stove with first basket of logs provided, £5 per basket thereafter.
